Lois Gicheru is the founder of Solafrique Limited, the first distributor of solar generators for the Kenyan market. These generators offer a cost effective, clean, uninterrupted, renewable energy supply for businesses and rural off-the-grid users who are looking for a substitute to diesel generators. Gicheru has been selected as one of five finalists for BiD Network’s 2012 Women in Business Challenge that focuses on women entrepreneurs in emerging markets. How we made it in Africa takes a moment with Gicheru to find out more about her entrepreneurial experiences and the importance of renewable energy in Africa.
